Dawes Arboretum

Took the trip down to Dawes Arboretum with my two dogs to enjoy the first snow of the year.  It was a very nice trip although cold.  The road through the arboretum was closed due to the weather so there were very few people there.  We parked at the office and headed out on foot.  We ended up walking through the woods and all the way around the park. 

The animals seemed to be quite active, I must’ve seen at least 8 deer and a hawk swooping down catching some type of prey.  I didn’t have a telephoto lens attached to my camera so I couldn’t manage a decent picture of the wildlife although I did manage to get some nice shots of the scenery and snow.  Dawes Arboretum is another one of those places that every nature lover should visit.  There’s no fee to get in and walk or drive around.  Here’s a few of my photos from today.  Click on them for a  larger version….
